Happy Birthday !!!

A fun quilt to celebrate the birthday for a girl or boy.
Making  traditions and fun memories by placing the birthday quilt on the sleeping birthday child.
What a fun way for them to awake and start the day of birthday wishes.
I also think it would be fun to add the birth-dates of each child by embroidering their names and birth-dates.
This pattern will be out next month.

Making  traditions and fun Memories... is a good thing.

New pattern coming out next week.
This sweet little backpack was inspired by my little granddaughter Autumn.
